Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/89 - 03/31/90

A need exists to develop a smaller, lighter, more efficient and more reliable clinical as analyzer for respiratory and anesthetic gas monitoring. Existing laser Raman based nstrumentation uses a large, heavy and extremely inefficient (0.1 %) argon ion laser with an intracavity gas cell. The long term objective of this study is to implement a sol...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/89 - 03/30/90

A need exists to develop a smaller, lighter, more efficient and more reliable clinical gas analyzer for respiratory and anesthetic gas monitoring. Existing laser Raman based instrumentation uses a large, heavy and extremely inefficient (0.1 %) argon ion laser with an intracavity gas cell which is subject to contamination and misalignment. Th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 12/01/87 - 06/30/89

Quantification of a number of molecular gases is required in clinical environments, i.e., respiratory and anesthitic gases, blood pO2 and pCO2, the toxic trace gases ethylene oxide, formaldehyde and escaped anesthetic agents and gases used for noninvasive lung function and cardiac output determinations. Raman light scattering provides a means of...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/28/87 - 11/30/88

A need exists to quantitate anesthetic and respiratory gases (O2, CO2, N2) in the operating room. Our previous work has shown that Raman light scattering can be successfully utilized for molecular gas analysis. The Raman signal for each gas can be separated from the laser beam Rayleigh scatter via filter combinations, thus, eliminating the nee...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/01/87 - 07/31/87

Using the mouse peritoneal implant model, materials will be evaluated for their biocompatibility. The objective of this study will be to develop materials with minimal tendency for cellular and tissue adhesion. Polyurethanes and silicones which are materials widely used in biomedical device fabrication will be synthesized or modified to yield a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 01/01/87 - 09/30/87

The anticoagulant, heparin, will be derivatized with biologically compatible hydrophobic macromolecules to make them water insoluble. This derivatization will occur through hydrophilic spacer groups so that the heparin can extend into the aqueous environment and retain its bioactive configuration. These heparin derivatives will be solvent coat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 12/01/86 - 11/30/87

Quantification of a number of molecular gases is required in clinical environments, i.e., respiratory and anesthitic gases, blood pO2 and pCO2, the toxic trace gases ethylene oxide, formaldehyde and escaped anesthetic agents and gases used for noninvasive lung function and cardiac output determinations.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/85 - 06/30/86

Urinary tract infections associated with urinary drainage catheters are a significant clinical problem resulting in a prolonged hospital stay and an increased mortality risk. This proposal addresses a feasibility study to determine if surface modification of the catheter will inhibit bacterial migration. The proposed research will test the hyp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/85 - 01/31/86

This project addresses the development and evaluation of a prototype laser Raman scattering gas sensor. Potential application areas are: blood pO2/pCO2 via suitable sampling catheter and noninvasive monitoring of respiration, anesthesia delivery, lung function and cardiac output. Mass spec, while currently the most popular approach to medical...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/01/85 - 10/31/85

Since antigens released from tumor cells can thwart the host's immune reactivity against immunogenic tumors in favor of tumor growth, the present work proposes to develop an extracorporeal system to remove the tumor antigen as well as the bound antigen (antigen-antibody complex) from the patient's plasma and return his/her own purified plasma to...
